Taft attorney Russell C. Menyhart was quoted in the BizVoice magazine article "Going Beyond Giving Back," published in the January/February 2016 issue by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. The article discusses corporate social responsibility, shared value, benefit corporations and Certified B Corps.
Menyhart, a member of Taft's Business & Finance and Litigation groups, helped garner support for passage of Indiana’s new benefit corporation legislation in a pro bono capacity. He is actively involved in promoting the growth of purpose-driven companies, social enterprises and impact investing in Indiana. He advises social entrepreneurs on how legal structures, including benefit corporations, can express and promote their values. This includes identifying the appropriate legal form for such entities, advising on expansion and financing, and assisting with B Corp certification and other third-party certifications and reports that can confirm and strengthen a social enterprise’s corporate identity and mission.
